Consumer Product Safety Commission
This project was performed with the support of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and involved the development of effective methods to reduce drowning rates of children under five years old. We analyzed drowning prevention programs, local and national data, legislation and enforcement policies for measures of effectiveness, and innovative ideas. From this, we have specific recommendations for the CPSC to improve data collection, increase public awareness, encourage the use of built-in products, and introduce new legislation and enforcement standards.
